As mans greatest technological achievement, the Space Shuttle stands as a proud monument to American persistence of vision. The winds have been blowing across the cape landscape since before recorded history. Now the winds are heralding in the dawn of a new age. The age of commercial space travel. The artist witnessed a night launch and here reflects the spectacle with his brush.
In this dramatic and visionary painting entitled "Lightship", Official NASA artist Atilla Hejja commemorates the triumph of the US Space Program. The original painting is on display in the Visitor’s Center, Cape Kennedy, Florida.
"Lightship" is carefully reproduced on Museum quality Archival Stock.
We are sad to report the passing of fellow artist Attila Hejja who died August 26, 2007 at the age of 52. Attila was best known for his portrayal of space-related art, such as his space shuttle trilogy. Our condolences to his family.
